Some time spent in a flight sim chatroom inspires Nicolas to talk about where the flight sim community stands going into the new MSFS, what flight sim media should be doing (themselves included), the forthcoming price hike in add ons, the reasons for the forthcoming price hikes and other elements of flight sim marketing, development and development budgets. Hopefully it isn’t as dry as it sounds and proves interesting and informative.
In this episode Nicolas talks about their disappointment with The FeelThere E Jets V3. They also discuss their tepid response to the release of the PMDG NGU 737-700 expansion. Mostly due to the fact that they have grown tired of the 737. They go on to discuss the release of the FSLabs A321. Their only frustration is with the dispatching of the plane as opposed to the plane itself. They end by mentioning that they just purchased The Aerosoft A330-300. Having waited 3 months in hopes of improved stability upon purchase. Nicolas’ review of The Aerosoft A330 will come at a later date.
In this episode I share my reactions to EAA’s preview of FS2020. The article was written by Hal Bryan former Flight Sim developer and current Senior Editor for EAA Digital and Print Content and Publications. We will be hearing directly from Hal in the next episode!
Way back in 2010 (before Twitch) I started a thing called FSRideAlong. The idea was to take you the listener along as I did my virtual globe trotting in Flight Sim. Needless to say, the idea didn’t go as well as I had hoped but the show has evolved a bit and you can find current episodes below.
As the internet evolved and video streaming became a thing I started a Twitch Channel also called FSRideAlong (I refer to it as the video version). You can find it here.
In this episode I talk about the challenges of building a community around my flight sim stream. I also talk about my degraded flying skills due to automation dependency, internet troll and my flight sim and aviation background.
In this episode I talk about a flight sim job opportunity that I missed due to not being in Seattle. I also talk about my new obsession over The E Jet which lead me to The Aerosoft CRJ. Long story short: The CRJ doesn’t have an autothrottle (I knew this going in). I hate The CRJ because it doesn’t have an autothrottle. This same line of thought leads me to XPlane and The X-Crafts Ejet. I question if I need Active Sky to really enjoy XP. Or, can I get the Ejet and fly in XP without AS? Lastly I am streaming again at https://www.twitch.tv/nicnacjak/
In this episode I profess my new found love for Airbus in the form of The FSLabs A320. I also speculate about what Microsoft will do to get their market share back. Finely I spend some time wondering if being in the flight sim media game should be a paying gig.
